Henry Wasser with Solidelle Fortier

Higher Education Policy in Europe and U.S.A.

These essays examine what might be called the culture and interdisciplinarity of higher education policy. They cover such major issues confronting universities as the corporatization of the university; the changing boundaries between public and private higher education; the role of university faculty, administrators, and trustees; and the social, political, and economic impact of universities on the community. They were originally presented as papers at conferences in Europe and North America sponsored by the American Scandinavian Society, the Canadian Association for Higher Education, the Consortium of Higher Education Researchers, the European Association for Institutional Research, the International Association of American Studies, the International Conference on Higher Education, Massachusetts Historical Society, and the World Congress of Comparative Education. Henry Wasser is a professor emeritus of sociology at the Graduate Center.
